Hi, Jon,

Victor Gaultney's investigation of this font, as reported in an
earlier email, clearly shows that this font contains exact copies of
other people's glyphs where the permission for such copying is not
clear at all.

To me, that suggests this font is a legal can of worms that you should
not be so quick to jump on.

If OFLB decides to use it, OFLB will have to investigate every single
glyph, and will have to cut out all of those where permission for use
cannot be obtained.  That might be a lot of glyphs.
